Chelsea striker Radamel Falcao will not be the next high profile player to join a Chinese transfer bandwagon, according to the striker's father. The Colombia international has not featured for the Blues in four months and with his loan spell at the club to expire at the end of the season, a move to the Far East has been speculated.
The transfer window in China remains open until the end of February and according to the Daily Mirror, Jiangsu Suning, who broke their transfer record three times in January, also made an offer for the former Atletico Madrid star.
While he may have become the forgotten man at Chelsea, his father Radamel Garcia insists the 30-year-old will be back in action by the end of the month and insists he will remain at Stamford Bridge until the end of the season.
"Let me tell you, Falcao will be back inside the pitch in ten days," Garcia told Radio RCN, Sky Sports report. "A lot of things can happen, but he will keep playing in Chelsea until the end of the season.
"He is not thinking about moving to China at all. He is just thinking about playing for Chelsea He is not sad at all. He is the kind of person who knows how to deal with these situations."
Falcao has not featured since coming off the bench in the 3-1 defeat to Liverpool back in October due to an ongoing thigh problem. In January, manager Guus Hiddink described the striker's injury as "very serious", suggesting the former Manchester United loanee was still months away from a return.
Ahead of the 5-1 thrashing of Newcastle United on Saturday February 13, Hiddink reported that the player was making progress in his bid to return to full fitness and suggested he expected all of his players to remain at the club until the end of the season.
